Each recipe is accompanied by a gorgeous colorful picture of every item. This makes it extremely difficult to not want to stop what you are doing and go make each dish you see! The pictures pull you in and keep you interested as you scroll through the hundreds of recipes on the site.

Each recipe also offers the nutritional information and recommended serving size. This helps people to be in control of their portions and keep track of the calories they are consuming daily.
